3Coldplay Covers Rihanna’s “We Found Love,” Makes It Listenable

Right? When Rihanna first released this tragic song, it was all I could do to get through the entire thing. If I remember correctly, the only way I managed it was by letting my guinea pig listen along with me and repeating “it’ll be over soon, Aladdin*. It’ll be over soon.”

But Coldplay went and did the unthinkable and made a Rihanna song into a song that I actually enjoy. This is monumental. This is a great moment in history. This is precisely why Coldplay needs to cover all the songs.

*His name is Aladdin, but like Bowie‘s Aladdin Sane, not the more traditional Aladdin. As you can imagine, he is one fierce guinea pig.

1Michael Lohan Got Arrested Again, Tried to Escape by Jumping Off A Balcony

A photo of Michael Lohan

I’ll say this about Michael Lohan: the man has got gumption. Just when you think you’ve got him, BAM! No such luck! You can’t cage a wild animal, and Michael Lohan is no exception.

For example, when Michael here decided that he wanted to talk to his girlfriend, Kate Major, just a couple days after getting arrested for beating and threatening to kill her, he went ahead and did it. He called and called her, and since Kate wasn’t quite ready to kiss and make up, she called the police, who rolled on over to Michael’s hotel to arrest him. But Michael Lohan is a resourceful man, and when pushed, he’s not afraid to do what it takes to survive and thrive. And that’s why instead of cooperating with the police, he jumped off his third story balcony, and then he got arrested. Michael Lohan does things on his own terms.

Did I mention that drugs and alcohol were involved?

2Ryan Gosling Talks Ballet, Disneyland, And His Feminine Side

A photo of Ryan Gosling

For real, that’s what this interview is all about. Ryan Gosling is the most whimsical man in all the land, and I really don’t think I need to waste any more time with this preamble, so let’s get right down to this adorable Ryan Gosling business:

On his popularity: “I’m just so sick of myself. I can’t imagine how everyone else feels. And there’s just nowhere to go but down really from here. So, hey, it’s been nice. It’s been real.”

On being compared to George Clooney: “I don’t even know what to think about that. Let me get back to you.”

On his female influences: “I think like a girl, I think. I was literally raised by my mother and my sister. And I just feel like I wouldn’t know how to think any other way. My sister was my best friend and my hero growing up. Because I was home-schooled I didn’t have a lot of friends and I did ballet, which was always just girls. All of that had an effect on my brain.”

More on ballet: “I practise whenever I can. A lot of the students are young girls so they’re there with their mums but they just kind of watch and tell me to keep it up. They try and be positive but I’m so bad. I don’t even know what I like about it but it’s like acting, I’m just compelled to do it and I do it to find out why. The not knowing is interesting.”

On Disneyland: “I have a love/hate relationship with Disneyland but what’s so interesting to me is that the attention to detail there never gets old. There’s always something new to find, something they’ve thought of. And there is always the idea of somebody who had a dream and made it so real you can walk around in it. “

Is there really anything left to say that hasn’t already been said about the magic of Ryan Gosling? Can we just take a few moments to bask in it, to reflect on it before we go back to our lives? Ok, thanks!

0Adele Is Undergoing Surgery, Cancels All Appearances for The Rest of The Year

A photo of Adele

It’s those damn vocal hemorrhages is what it is. The hemorrhages have forced the lovely Adele to cancel concert after concert for the past several months, but things are about to get serious: no more concerts for the rest of the year so this girl can finally get better.

Here’s the official announcement from Adele’s website:

It is with deep regret that Adele has been forced to cancel her remaining live dates and promotional appearances in 2011. She is to undergo surgery to alleviate the current issues with her throat and a full recovery is expected. As a result, doctors have ordered her to rest her voice and completely recuperate before looking to schedule any work commitments.

Ticket holders for all cancelled live dates will receive a refund from the point of purchase. We apologise for any inconvenience and disappointment caused, and appreciate your understanding during this time.

Here’s hoping that Adele recovers without any problems so she can get back to sharing her beautiful gift with the world! And also that she’s able to come to North Carolina again so I can be That Girl who sobs and convulses when she sings “Someone Like You” (please tell me there’s a girl like that at every concert).

4Watch This: Courtney Stodden, Pageant Queen

Nope, we still aren’t done with Courtney Stodden, and whatever she and her mother are up to is totally working, it devastates me to admit.

Here’s the precocious Mrs. Hutchison as a 15-year old, competing in the Miss Washington Teen USA Pageant. You can see how, even in the distant, uh, back in 2010, little Court is already demonstrating her unique and special brand of gammin’ and struttin’. Looking good, kid!
